Experimental Animation and Electronic Literature: Piotr Marecki and Sławomir Shuty

Suffering from writer’s block, the Author decides to induce inspiration chemically. The pastry he consumes transports him, like the fairytale Alice, into a land of hallucinogenic visions. The revelation results in an increase of creative potential. However, the depths of imagination are inhabited by demons that must be confronted. TRIP is a metaphorical account of an internal voyage, an animated penetration to the Buddhist bardo, a black comedy tale about the transformation of a creative impasse into fulfillment.

Episode III – The Collection and Health; Discussion: 15 April, 21 April and 28 April starting at 6pm

Discussion: 15 April, 21 April and 28 April starting at 6pm

In 2014, the Sculpture Studio of UMPRUM founded a collection of items using which it is involved in an ongoing attempt to track the boundaries of sculpture as a medium, the contours of an item, sculpture and object, their psychology, materiality, historicity, institutionalisation, as well as the dynamic of a studio community. Items for inclusion in the collection are selected by a committee of students and lecturers who interpret the item prior to accepting or rejecting it. We take note of the entire process involved in the creation of the collection and record not only the items themselves, but the oral and textual flow of thoughts that surround them. We are convinced that a collection without interpretation makes no sense, and so we decided to validate the collection and the activities associated with it on a regular basis by means of a series of episodic exhibitions and other presentations.
